I have MySQL working at my host DiscountASP.net.
I know this because I have MySQL Control Center connected to it from my machine at home.
I followed your install instructions very carefully, but I get the following error message:
Error establishing a database connection!
I have checked my code very carefully - even tried different settings for the host name - I tried 'localhost' and the host name I use when connecting with MySQL Control Center.
I even changed the password and checked it with MySQL Control Center.
None of the combinations will work. I always get the same error message.
If I can get connected with MySQL Control Center, why wouldn't I be able to connect with WordPress?
I'd appreciate any help, otherwise I'll have to abandon my attempt to use WordPress.
